Hello all, yet another Nagios noob here. I’ve spent some time lurking and have gotten my install fully running and operational, but I’ve come across a problem I can’t seem to find an answer to.
I have a number of printers which I would like to monitor (most HP, plus a few others), and an completely unable to from within the interface. The check commands run properly from the command line, as user nagios, but always fail when run automatically.
check_ping, _hpjd, and _http all fail.
I have a number of other hosts and services set up - servers and switches - and everything works properly there. It’s only the printers that do not work.
The event log shows “HOST ALERT: 00pr04;DOWN;SOFT;9;CRITICAL - Plugin timed out after 10 seconds”.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
